I'd be interested in learning of specific vendors/markets, along with
the reasons given.  Did they cite temporary capacity constraints, or
anything of greater long-term significance?

Here in the New York metro, you'd be hard pressed to find a vendor
willing to turn away a 10G transit deal and the associated revenue.
In the past few months, I've been approached by half a dozen or so
major carriers eager to sell 10 gigabit ports, and with the capacity
to deliver.  If your customers are, indeed, reporting a widespread
difficulty obtaining 10 gigabit ports from the larger players, I can
think of plenty of smaller ISPs and switch-based resellers who'd be
happy to carry their traffic.

While I'm greatly interested in Internet video and the need to come up
with new ways to deliver it more efficiently, I'd be weary of listing
the [lack of] availability of transit ports as contributing factor.
